to immigration. >> i was an immigration lawyer for 15 years, so as a conservative voice i understand what steve is saying, but i think we have to realize as republican party that we're never going to be a majority party if we don't figure out a way to reach to the hispanic, to reach the hispanic community. so we have defined what i call, and i been talking about this for two years but where to find a conservative consensus on immigration. we have to figure out how steve and i are going to sit and agree on a bill, and people at this table that will actually do something about a broken immigration system. one of the biggest things can service talk about often is that we want to fix a broken government. well, if you know anything about immigration law, the immigration system is absolutely broken in the united states. we need to get away that people can come to the united states to a legal system. we have to do something about border protection, i'm a big fan doing something with e-verify. all those things we have to do, but at the same time we have to forget what we pashtun we can't keep punting t
steve schmitt who lamented how much the power and influence of the g.o.p. noise machine has over republican leadership. it is a big issue for them. >> it is. it is almost impossible for them to divorce themselves from the right wing media. we heard more criticism of mitt romney particularly the republican governor's association going after him for the gift comments he made which was sort of another version of the 47% comment. they're saying you can't talk to voters that way. noy, jindal from -- you know,endle from louisiana saying this is what the republican party has to get away from. who practically authored the 47% comments? who cheered romney's gift comments? fox news, rush limbaugh. they love this stuff. i wrote about it during the campaign. you know. republican operatives who run campaigns for a living and know or think they know how to win independent voters look at fox news and say you are killing us. you are driving the party into the ground. you can't -- you can't do blunt. you can't win national electi
first time was spent working with steve israel to make sure we had the resources to prevail in those races. my second time i spent was to call people who were not successful in this particular election. everybody here was getting a lot of calls -- a running is very noisy. not succeeding, the phones do not ring that much. so i wanted to hear from them, what their views were about how we go forward. then to take the calls of my colleagues to see what their view is. what i talked about here, about changing the role of money in politics, is really very important motivator for me to stay in the leader's office. i think it must be done. when people say money did not make any difference in the campaign, they all wasted them money -- that really was not true. the president of the united states, the most well known, respected person on the planet, had to spend about $1 billion to set the record straight from what that big money was putting out there. senate races, house races, tammy duckworth had $7 million spent against their of outside money. this is a congressional race. this is not right.
